    Amazing hostel for a great price in a great location. The staff was AMAZING and super friendly. They hosted game nights and there was a sense of community. Also the breakfast was really good and I loved that it was included. My only qualms was the shower and the beds. The room was kind of tiny and there was no private beds (in the mixed room). The shower's drain was screwy and it led to water overflowing. Other than those two things, I would HIGHLY recommend Le Penguin

    This is a great hostel! Not the cleanest and slightly far from the old town (still walking distance), but the staff are so friendly and chilled out and overall great vibes. The common areas are so comfy and chill and there’s always people there to chat to. The free breakfast is a nice bonus and you can pay for dinner as well if you’d like. There’s a good kitchen and cooking facilities and enough bathrooms that I never had to wait for one to be available. Clean sheets and comfy bed. Hot water.

    The location of the hostel was good. In about 5 minutes you were in the city center. There are mostly volunteers working at the hostel who were friendly. The bedrooms were okay, but the kitchen and the bathrooms were dirty although they were cleaned every day. At breakfast you had three choices. Cereal, eggs or sandwich. For the price, everything was decent.

    I wouldn't stay in this hostel again. No locks for lockers - you have to buy the lock and there's no info about it in the description. They don't give towels, probably for money as well. The breakfast is so poor...I stayed in other hostels in the cost and I had amazing breakfasts, but they give you just scrambled eggs (no tomatoes both mornings of my stay) or toast or cereals - u have to choose only one. Also Diego who works there was very rude while talking with me. Toilets need some renovation

    I NEVER HAND A CHANCE TO BE HOSTED IN THAT MEDIOCRE CUSTOMER SERVICE HOSTEL BECAUSE I CANCELLED MY TRIP AND THE HOSTEL AND HOSTELWORD NEVER CAME BACK TO ME. I DID NOT GET THE DEPOSIT BACK. I WON'T RECOMMEND YOU TO STAY THERE. PENGUIN HOSTEL DOES NOT RETURN PHONE CALLS AND EMAILS. THAT IS NOT AT ALL THE KIND OF HOSTEL YOU WISH TO BE HOSTED THERE. GO TO FARO HI INTERNATIONAL INSTEAD WHERE STAFF WILL RESPECT YOU.
